Moto G Google Play Edition gets Android 5.1 Lollipop
The original Moto G Google Play Edition is getting Google’s latest Android 5.1 Lollipop software. The update is rolling out now over-the-air, and it brings a number of new features and plenty of nice improvements.
Just like Android 5.1 for Google’s own Nexus devices, this update brings things like improved dual-SIM card support, HD voice calling on compatible carriers, and the ability to switch Wi-Fi and Bluetooth networks.
The update also fixes a whole bunch of bugs, so you can expect better performance and greater stability. One thing the Moto G does not get, however, is the new Device Protection Manager, which locks lost and stolen devices so that they cannot be used.
The Moto G is one of the first Google Play Edition devices to get Android 5.1, with other handsets like the One M7 and One M8, the Galaxy S4, and the Sony Z Ultra still waiting.
If you haven’t already received your update notification, you can search for it manually from within the software update section in the Settings app — but bear in mind if could take a few weeks to reach all devices.
